The paper deals with the environmental issues that have been seen during the times of Corona. The main contributor to the depletion of environment because of corona virus is PPE kits used by doctors and health care workers for their protection from the virus. The issue of PPE kits pollution has not gained a momentum of limelight because people have not given it a shot about thinking on this issue and which is evident from the attitude of people with respect to masks which they throw on the streets and lakes after their use, thus people need to be made aware about this problem. The paper will also show how the authorities and hospitals are facing problem due to increased work load which leads to a situation where they cannot handle the waste properly which leads to mismanagement and thus improper disposal of PPE kits. Various disposal and recycling methods are also shown in the research paper along with case studies.
